Dear all,

I just wrote under the subject “Re: Managing articles in org mode and collaboration”. This posting puts the other one in a broader context.

While thinking about organizing articles, I asked myself: Wouldn’t it be useful to keep metadata/notes about *various* kinds of files/sub-directories/projects inside org-mode (or something similar)?

One example is a collection of programming projects. Just like for articles, it would be useful to add notes and metadata to each project. The same is true for many other archive-like collections of things that grow over time. The same problems appear as described in the other posting (namely scaling and searching).

I know that there have been discussions about this in the past, and I know that there’s org-annotate-file. Is there anyone who uses a scheme like this (for >1000 items, say) in practice?
